This is a hard-hitting collection of essays on school and schooling. Kohn takes on some of the most important and controversial topics in education of the last few years. His central focus is on the real goals of education a topic, he argues, that we systematically ignore while lavishing attention on misguided models of learning and counterproductive techniques of motivation.
Alfie Kohn's previous eight books include "Punished by Rewards, No Contest," and "The Schools Our Children Deserve." He speaks widely to teachers and parents and lives in Belmont, Massachusetts.
